Melissa Etheridge Scores Radio Hit with Fearless Love
"Fearless Love" is the title track from Fearless Love, Melissa's triumphant new album, arriving April 27th on Island Records.
The "Fearless Love" single and album were produced by John Shanks, whose first producer credit was Etheridge's Breakdown, her four-time Grammy-nominated album of 1999. Since then, Shanks has risen to the top ranks of rock and pop producers with credits including Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette and Bon Jovi, earning him a 2005 Producer of the Year Grammy Award.
Fearless Love expands on the multiple strengths that have made Etheridge one of the most beloved figures in rock. It follows The Awakening, her revealing album of 2007, with a rousing tone at once tough and tender, as only she can be. It is that force of presence which has earned her, among other accolades, the 2007 Academy Award for Best Original Song ("I Need to Wake Up" from the documentary film An Inconvenient Truth) and two Grammy Awards.
